What is displaced distal radius fracture?
Your radius is in your forearm. You have two bones in the forearm - the radius and the ulna. If you place your hand palm facing upwards towards the ceiling your radius bone is on the side of your thumb. Distal means at a point further from the attachement to the body, meaning closer to the wrist than the elbow. Displaced means out of place, meaning the broken bone has been knocked out of its usual position. So, putting it all together a displaced distal radius fracture is a break in your forearm bone on the side of the thumb which has been knocked out of its regular position by the break.

The radius is one of two bones of the forearm. It's on the thumb side of your forearm. It's wide at the wrist end (distal) and narrow at the elbow end (proximal). The radial… head is the name of the part of the radius at the elbow end of the forearm and forms part of the elbow joint. A non-displaced fracture just means that the fractured (broken) pieces of bone are not moved out of place. Another way of stating this is that the bone is cracked. It's broken all the way through but not moved out of its normal position.

The Buckle or torus fracture is an extremely common injury in children. The previous response stated "Get them sent to an A&E/ER immediately, unless you want the risk of a def…ormed forearm occurring as the bone heals". A search of the literature shows that in most cases this type of fracture can be effectively managed by either acute hospital-based professionals or outside the hospital eg a local GP with additional training. How to treat it? For example the J Pediatr Orthop 25: 322-325, 2005 states that t he current treatment regimen recommends some type of immobilization with either a cast or splint. The study showed that buckle fractures in the radius may be safely treated in a soft bandage without long-term adverse effects to the child. Numerous other studies confirm the effective use of splints.
The forearm only has 2 bones: the radius and the ulna.
PRONATION The action is pronation which is also known as rotation of the forearm. If you were to put your arm in front of you with your palm up and then rotate it so your palm… is facing down, that is pronation. turning your palm down

An oblique distal fibula fracture is a break in the smaller bone of the lower leg. The break is located closer to the ankle than to the knee, and the break has a diagonal orie…ntation. The use of both "acute" and "subacute" doesn't make sense.
The lower extremity of the radius actually has two bones which it articulates with. The carpal and the ulna.
Scaphoid and lunate. Probably part of the triquetrum also. Distal end of ulna does not take any important part in articulation with the wrist bones.
